The russian company Polytechnika LLC manufactured three 20 m³ PP-H storage tanks for a sulphuric acid production unit.
Project Date: 2017
Manufacturer: Polytechnika LLC
Material: PP-H grey sheets, pipes, fittings, welding rod
Medium: 10 % to 40 % sulphuric acid (H2SO4)
Pressure: Atmospheric / Ambient
Temperature: 70 °C
Dimensions: OD 2200 mm x 5220 mm (20 m³)
In April 2017 Polytechnika LLC manufactured three PP-H (Polypropylene Homopolymer) tanks, each with a volume of 20 m³, for the storage of 10 % to 40 % sulphuric acid. The tanks were delivered and installed in a sulphuric acid production plant south of Moscow.
The storage units were constructed using PP-H semi-finished products produced by AGRU. Sheets, pipes, fittings and welding rod had been processed according to the customer’s needs.
The tanks are designed to store a solution of sulphuric acid with a mass concentration of 10 % to 40 % with a working temperature of 5 to 70 ° C. The working pressure is ambient. The tanks have been designed for a service life of 20 years.
The inner diameter of the cylinder is 2200 mm, the height of the tank is 5220 mm. The wall-thickness varies from 15 to 45 mm. The geometric volume of the tank is 20 m³, the working volume is 18 m³. The tank has a flat bottom, a conical roof, two manholes (DN 500 and DN 600), nozzles with union flanges, eyelets for slinging, seals, fasteners and clamps to attach it to the foundation.
The production of the storage units was carried out in accordance to DVS 2205. The welding of PP semi-finished products in accordance with DVS 2207. The welding was done by welders, who are certified by the national welding control agency (NAKS). They used hot gas welding, extrusion and butt welding.
The set of technical documentation includes a passport, an assembly drawing, an operation manual, a strength analysis, a safety justification, acceptance test certificates, declaration of conformity according to TR TS 010-2011 on the safety of machinery and equipment, as well as certificates of conformity on materials and components.
